Lesson Eight: Count Winners and Losers
Declarer also can estimate how many tricks he/she is going to take based on the Winners and Losers between his/her and dummy’s hands. For No Trump contracts we count Winners, for the Suit contracts count Losers.
Example, we in No Trump contract and according to our points we will have to win at least 9 tricks. So, we count Winners.
We will start from counting Quick Winners (tricks that we can win without giving the lead): A,K of Hearts; A,K,Q of Diamonds; A of Clubs.
Total we have 6 Quick Winners but our contract is to win 9 tricks. Lesson Nine will be explain how you can get 3 more Winners.
